The Aston Martin V12 Vanquish entered production in 2001, having been developed from the 1998 Project Vantage concept car. It marked a large step in Aston Martin’s vehicle engineering as the company combined a bonded aluminium chassis with their traditional craftsmanship. This was a new era for the Aston Martin brand.
In 2002 the V12 Vanquish became the latest Aston Martin to be driven by James Bond. Featuring as 007’s car in the 2002 film “Die Another Day”, earned the V12 Vanquish number 3 on the list of Best Film Cars Ever.
Aston Martin’s V12 Vanquish features an extremely rigid and safe body shell made from aluminium and carbon fibre, this shell was then fitted with hand-finished, Superformed aluminium panels. Under close examination it is clear that our Vanquish is still as perfectly straight as the day it left the factory.
Underneath the bonnet sits a 460bhp version of the Aston Martin V12 engine, hand crafted with pride by Stuart Bull. The engine delivers its power via a 6-speed semi-automatic gearbox that is smooth and effortless, even under load. The engine bay is beautifully detailed and in immaculate condition. This is a spectacular vehicle to drive and is highly rated by our experienced staff.
Our car is fitted with unscathed 19” multi-spoke alloy wheels and a matching set of Yokohama tyres. A personal favourite of ours are the Aston Martin embossed red brake calipers that enhance the appearance of the car.
The Aston Martin V12 Vanquish for sale at DD Classics is finished in a Antrim Blue metallic coachwork with Parchment Connolly hide, quilted inserts, Royal Blue Wilton carpets & matching top roll. Beautifully stitched leather piping completes the carpets and adds that extra touch of luxury. The Alcantara headlining remains in immaculate condition, the seats are fabulous and the carpets show no sign of wear. It is clear that our car has been lovingly maintained, having had only one owner from new. In that time span the vehicle has completed a mere 7,708 miles.
The last Aston Martin to be hand-built at the famous Newport Pagnell factory, the V12 Vanquish is deemed by many to be the final model of the ‘true’ Aston Martin’s. Considered by many to be a future classic, this is a fantastic investment opportunity for any car enthusiast.
